4 cups of basmati rice, soaked in water for 2 to 3 hours

1 onion, chopped

4 tbsp of vegetable oil

1 tsp of red chili powder

4 tsp of salt

8 cups of water

1 tsp of garam masala


1- Add vegetable oil in heavy bottom pan and preheat it on medium heat. Add chopped onions in it and cook them until they get golden in color. Add a splash of water to prevent them from over cooking.

2- Add red chili powder and stir it well. Add all the water. Once it comes to a boil add salt and garam masala. Now start adding soaked rice in the water. Once you added all the rice stir it well. Close the lid let them cook for about 2 to 5 minutes but keep an eye on them.
